Please save the really burning Questions about 'Meditation' or 'Spirituality', contemporary or ancient - for the class session itself ! -or- for other Logistic Details that may concern you, simply go to:

How many Meditators Usually Attend ? ~ 8, 10, 12 max -
it's a very small, intimate, weekly salon-sized study group.
Meditators come from other sources besides just MeetUp !
This may be too upfront, close & personal for some... or maybe not...

We're more of a weekly study group,
rather than a social-network group.

The Book for class discussion:
A Path with Heart
by Jack Kornfield ( get it later ) -
plus there's also free readings and other Buddhist resources.
Group dialogue gets quite lively !

Coming ?
RSVP: Please use PHONE for RSVP
for Only for the First Time.[masked] 
or email [masked]

( Try NOT to use the MeetUp's RSVP )

Use Your CELLPHONE instead, please...
or leave a message

Then Just Come !
